Re: Great DVD player

ok, so I bought one and all I can say is (clicky).

I added the hacked firmware upgrade and it's waaaaaaaay better now too, which you can get right here and here. And here are more details on it. So far it's been perfect. I'm temporarily in Heart. Laughing

Re: Great DVD player

Seeeeeeeeeeeeeee I told you so - its a awesome DVD player (especally if your a torrent person).

I haven't hacked mine and I probably will down the road. I would be all over it if it let you change the flash from Fat32 to NTFS Day Dreaming . I'm glad you liked it. (your clicky made me Laughing )

Re: Great DVD player

Laughing. Yea, evidently no players will do NTFS filesystems, yet. But I'd highly recommend upgrading the firmware. The filebrowser alone is well worth it. One lil tip though if/when you do: anytime ya mess with firmware you end up holding your breath and getting nervous ... I've messed with firmware on 50 different things and I still do, Laughing. When the cd tray pops out and you're just sitting there holding your breath waiting, don't get jumpy and close the tray, just wait it out. It seems like it's taking forever and there's no real sign that it's doing anything. Just looks a little frozen, but it'll work. The whole thing took me about 45 seconds to a minute using the Flash DriveFlash Drive to upgrade the firmware, but that 45 seconds/1 minute seemed to take forever. Tongue

Re: Great DVD player

How is it possible that 2 DvD players can die in the same night? Gonna go check this one out.. Green + shopping = happy

Re: Great DVD player

I'm sure this is somewhere on the site, but I can't find it... Okay, so I love my DVD player. But I have discovered it doesn't play MPEG4 files ie: movies downloaded from iTunes. Is there a good program (free) that can convert these files and other unsupported files to .avi?

I'm wondering if the iTunes DRM protection is the reason? I haven't tried any myself yet, but according to this page, is says the dvd player is supposed to support MP4. Either way, the DiVX package itself has a converter in it, and here are a couple of other freeware options to try.
